I no longer have this very pretty bush in my yard. that doesn't make me all that sad. it was very pretty last year.. I feel like it's very hit and miss when it looked like this and when it was just ugly. It bloomed for three days and then it was just an ugly bush. So, we had the guy take it out when he did the septic last Fall. The yard is very ugly right now. I'm not sure what to do about that. should we just plant grass and go for a yard, or should I do a garden and make it profitable and a lot of work. That's the part that scares me, I don't know how much time I'll have to take care of a garden this summer so will it just turn into a nasty weed patch? What to do? Time will tell. We'll probably end up doing a little of both. Because I KNOW I'm not going to have time to take care of a garden the size of my whole yard. that's my pointless rant for the day. stay tuned.
